Fulham v Tottenham betting preview

Fulham’s chances of reaching the play-offs this season appear to be slowly diminishing as they now sit six points and three places away from the top six. The Cottagers have shown glimpses of their true potential and in Slavisa Jokanovic they have a manager who has experience in winning promotion from this division so this has been a progressive season nonetheless.

The Londoners have enjoyed two solid showings in the FA Cup so far this term, winning away in the Welsh capital over Cardiff City before hammering Premier League outfit Hull City 4-1 and they’ve also won their last three matches in front of their own supporters so they have reason to be quietly confident here, despite odds of 15/4 with bet365 from the home win.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino admitted that the title race was all but over for his side following their away defeat at the hands of Liverpool this weekend. Despite that loss, Spurs are still enjoying a strong season and remain in third place although the chase for a top four finish and Champions League qualification is a tight one at the top of the Premier League.

Having been knocked out of the EFL Cup and Champions League, Pochettino may see the FA Cup as an ideal trophy to concentrate on if he’s to win his first competition as Tottenham boss this season. After struggling to overcome League Two Wycombe in Round Four, he’ll be hoping for more comfortable performances and progress here at 4/5 with Sky Bet.

Fulham are strong going forward and they’ve found the net in their last 11 matches at Craven Cottage and the likes of Chris Martin and Stefan Johansen will threaten the visitors’ defence. Tottenham should still win the game, but they will be given plenty to think about by the hosts and that’s why we’re on Tottenham to win and BTTS and 12/5 with Ladbrokes.

Pochettino’s faith in Dutch striker Vincent Janssen appears to have slowly eroded and so we’re expecting Harry Kane to remain in the starting eleven for this FA Cup clash on Sunday. The England international has smashed in 14 goals in 20 Premier League appearances this year so we can see him getting the better of the hosts’ defence and finding the net in this one at evens with William Hill.
